UCL Lunch Hour Lecture: What does London owe to slavery? Dr Nick Draper (UCL History) For Liverpool and Bristol much work has been done in tracing the role of the slave-trade and slavery in shaping the cities’ histories, but the scale and complexity of London’s growth in the 18th and 19th centuries has obscured the contribution of slavery to the formation of the modern capital. This lecture explores the evidence for the centrality of slavery in understanding how London became what we know it as today. This lecture marks Black History Month.
